Miss Fisher Random Thoughts (225)

Bert: “We left the docks so we wouldn’t have to lick the boss’s boots.

Cec: “Miss Fisher’s boots are different.

Oh well, it’s time to get going and go lick the boss’s boots on this Red-ragger Thursday. If only my boss would buy me a brand new motor car and is as fun and adventurous as Miss Fisher…Anyhow, at least, we have tomorrow and the weekend to look forward to.

“Miss Fisher is that rare fictional example of what life can be like for women who chose not to get married and/or have children — and how that alternative can be just as fulfilling.

Some of you came and watched me work on this earlier today. For those of you who dropped in, thanks! It was fun to have company over the computer.

I am really proud of this. It’s been a long time since I’ve made any serious attempts at good art, and this was a lot of fun and I think it went well. I’m sure there are some mistakes in there somewhere that I missed, but I don’t care at this point. I’m happy with how it turned out, and that’s the first time I’ve been able to say that about my art in a long while.

The circle emblems and the overlay pattern can be found here, and the font I used is called Eureka.

Now I’m off to bed because classes start tomorrow and I need sleep!
